Davidson has a rich history against Ohio State

On Dec. 11, 1963, in the teams' first meeting, Davidson ended Ohio State's 50-game homecourt winning streak with a 95-73 thumping.

The teams last met in the 2002 NCAA tournament, when Ohio State won 69-64. The NCAA vacated that victory last week because of the Buckeyes' rules violations, but the game still counts as a loss for Davidson.

Davidson's record in the series is 3-3, but Ohio State is considered 2-3 against the Wildcats because of the nullified victory.

Davidson's other NCAA tournament game under coach Bob McKillop, against Michigan in 1998, also was vacated because of rules violations.

"Hey, I'm 2-0 in the NCAA tournament," McKillop joked.

Dayton Gameday: Davidson, UNC in action

ANALYSIS: Ohio State has five players averaging 10 points or more, led by 6-foot-9 Terence Dials (15 ppg). If Davidson tries to double-team Dials, any of the five Ohio State players with at least 29 3-pointers this season can hurt the Wildcats. Brendan Winters (16.3 ppg) has to get hot for Davidson to have a chance.
